    Default Pork Skins , Diet Canada Dry Gringer Ale

    Has anyone ate Pork Skins on the induction phase?
    Is it ok to have 8oz Diet Ginger Ale with lunch?

    I don't eat them during induction. They are a really high calorie, high sodium, low nutrient snack. It's really easy to get carried away with those and down a whole bag. If you are anything like me, then the calories in a whole bag of pork rinds will effect your weight loss. I've found that if I don't keep calories under 1,800 I stop losing weight completely. Calories don't necessarily need to be counted, but it is easy to go overboard and stall weight loss when snacking on things like pork rinds.

    I haven't eaten them this time but I did last time with no bad effects. I've used them as breading on my fried chicken strips and my string cheese (to make mozerella sticks) to add crunch. Only the plain ones though, haven't found any seasoned ones without sugar here.

    Pork rinds are allowed on induction, as long as they are plain or have no sugar in the ingredients. Dr. A did say once to keep the amount to a cup or so--that's not in the book. As with anything, you should control how much you eat. This is an all-you-NEED-to-eat diet, not an all-you-CAN-eat diet. Pork rinds are higher fat, so they are filling, and they crunch, so you won't be as tempted to go for the chips. Scooping up dips with a crunchy pork rind tastes like cheating.

    Is the ginger ale sweetened with Splenda? Remember, you are only allowed three servings of any artificial sweeteners a day. You would be better served if you spend the two weeks of induction getting rid of the sweet tooth. After you forego all sweets for a while, when you have clean taste buds, even lettuce tastes sweet.

    Induction should be as much about re-training taste buds as it is losing weight.
    People who say it can't be done, should not interrupt those doing it.

    That sounds awesome. I have been craving artichokes and I have been craving spinach--both in the same dish-- delicious!
